    Do you want to backup your DVD collection to Blank Disc or your computer in ISO file in case of losing or damaging them accidently one day.
    A popular application called DVD Decrypter lets you copy an entire DVD onto your computerís hard drive, and it bypasses any copy protection mechanisms that would make duplicating a store-bought DVD otherwise impossible. The only problem is that new copy protection algorithms are frequently being created, and this application hasnít been updated since 2005.

    'Paranormal Activity 2' is a chilling movie experience.


    $10,000 can take you a LONG way. In 2009, 'Paranormal Activity' proved that. On the aforementioned budget, the film went on to become a box office smash, and even managed to make an impression on the critics. Using the same camera technique (known by some to be the "found footage" genre) that skyrocketed films like 'Blair Witch Project' and 'Cloverfield', 'Paranormal Activity' used precision-balanced build-up and tension...

    Alright guys i made a post last week of a poem i wrote and got good reviews on it so i decided to do a weekly literature blog of anything I write anyways the first poem is down below and i want you guys to enjoy the rest


    Broken

    I hear the cries of a family echo,
    throughout the halls of a broken home,
    the bewildered baby boy cries out to the father,
    the father cries out to the son he cannot comfort,
    the dainty daughter cries out for the return of the father,
    the mother cries for the daughter,
    whose wishes she cannot grant,
    the father...

    I wrote this poem two years ago and I figure that it's worth posting.

    vShe floats atop the billowing sea.
    Worlds forgotten, time irrelevant.
    She seeks inner peace.

    Her breathing is stagnant,
    but she will not drown.
    The sea is in her favor this day,
    and does nothing but assist the process.

    A search for nothing more than ecstacy.
    Not through submission,
    but through acceptance.
    The acceptance of self,
    nothing else.

    Subliminal and sought by all.
    Shrouded by fallacy,
    and guarded by ignorance.
    Her...

    My name is Ben Allen Honeycutt,

    When I reminisce about the lost years of my childhood, two passions still flourish within my memory, these are my dreams to become a writer, and my dreams to become a volcanologist.

    I often find myself thinking of my childhood experiences when I examine the roots of who I am today. I possessed an incredibly lush imagination as a child, this claim is underlined by the fact that I often spent my recesses creating adventures within another world. I was blessed to have parents who never attempted to tame my wild imagination, instead, they allowed...

    The last three months of my junior year were easily the most difficult months of school that I ever had endured, by the time I ran into summer, I felt as if I had been lacerated from every direction. I had survived multiple honors classes, math, chemistry, and a commitment to forensics. It was also the first time in my life that I had to balance a job on top of my education. In the last two weeks of the school year, I approached all of my commitments with an incredible dour demeanor, and it caused my performance in both academics and my job to suffer. My algebra II grade ended up plunging by an...

    It's not often that I have such a weird dream that I am inclined to keep a record of it, but this time I must.

    I would say that this dream must have occurred for most of the night because its extent was incomparable to anything I've ever experienced. I even believe that I woke up only to resume it once I fell back asleep again.

    So, the dream went like this (I'll try to recall it to best of my ability - it's already slipping):

    I have assumingly just graduated from high school wherein I am challenged by the principle or administrator of another to be an English teacher....

    It's rather self explanatory
    I gave up soda for around three and a half years, while this was incredibly challenging at first, I hardly ever thought of it as the years went on. In this time, I grew to appreciate the other delicious beverages in our society. Within this blog, I shall review each of my favorite drinks, and let me tell you in advance, they're pretty much the Cat's pajamas.

    A Poem
    I wrote this months ago during the summer, but I don't mind sharing it here.

    I have found a light in the sky,
    worth capturing in my hands.
    Fluttering by, not like a shooting star,
    but a butterfly impaired.

    Its impairment, not a fault,
    but rather a representation of time slowing down.

    Glad for the opportunity to reach,
    I leant a fleeting grasp at its trail.

    My hand, never fully closed,
    graciously allowed dreams to shine through.
    Dreams of mine own,
    and maybe her's, too.

    It could have been the wonder...

    The city that housed the infamous Chernobyl reactor.
    For reasons that I cannot fully explain, my mind has been taken by the city of Pripyat, Ukraine, or better known as the city which housed the Chernobyl reactor. For those of you who are unaware, about 24 years ago, there was a terrible accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant which led to death of 52 people. (Later, the explosion accounted for the deaths of 4000 people.) While I was aware of the nuclear disaster, I had never stopped to ponder the city around the nuclear reactor.

    I found out that this city of 50,000 was evacuated about three days after the accident, completely emptying...

    Dwight feels my sorrow


    I kind of ruined my shoelaces, I definitely did not do this intentionally, but that definitely does not ease my pain. I began to run about three miles each day, and sadly, my shoelaces paid the price. They were good shoelaces, I often took them out to eat, and they were with me wherever I decided to go, but because of my carelessness, I will never see them again. I am having a difficult time putting my sadness into words, I have lost...

    Grilled Chesse at its finest


    I enjoy high quality grilled cheese, I do not mean the conjuration of two slices of bread and two pieces of kraft cheese microwaved into a soup. No, I'm talking about a cheese sandwich grilled with the heavy hands of a George Foreman grill.

    However, it does not end there, I like to add a little pizazz to the classic dish, I achieve this feat by adding about four pickles to the sandwich, (Any more and it's a...

    Have you ever felt like maybe you let your emotions rule your life? I feel like I have been letting them take control a bit too much lately. It's like the rational part of my brain exists but I'm never able to use it properly until after the situation has already occurred. I feel like this is a big problem of mine and I'm really finding it difficult to try and figure out how to solve the problem. Maybe I just need an outlet. I need to find a hobby or something to devote my full attention too. I have faith that I will be able to overcome this eventually but it will take some work.

    Today one of the best friends I've ever known told me that she wishes to never speak to me again.

    This relationship has been fraught with misunderstanding for the last three months, but this does not lessen the emptiness to which I am now consumed.

    I was not acquainted to love when I stood in eighth grade, ignorant to what I missed, I was but a soldier lost in rain. I was not aware that on the quiet february day that the aim message on my screen would lead to one of the greatest friendships I should ever know.

    It was a whirlwind, the two and a half years that...

    I've never encountered anything else on this world that is as awe inspiring as nature. Yesterday I had one of the best days I've had this year.

    I was fairly despondent, my thoughts encompassed saddening feelings such as the immensely challenging upcoming school year, and many other atramentous thoughts within me.

    I decided to force myself to write, It had been about three weeks since I had updated my story, (I took a break so I could finish my summer schoolwork.) After a slow start, I became engrossed in attempting to paint a picture within my writing of my visualization....

    My hero is Rene Descartes, and this means I am skeptical, always

    answers without strong evidence to it. I prefer doubt over illusions. Much of

    my own beliefs coincide with his. I believe there is a solid truth to everything. We

    Bliss is an exotic feeling. To achieve such emotional euphoria through ignorance seems almost contradictory. As an illusionist weaves his web of falsehood, fallacy, and condemnation of thoughts which are not his own he creates a fulfilling and pride invested sense of security. We climb walls instead of crossing those decrepit bridges, only to find another wall before us. The difference between those who strive to unmask all truths, and those who instead choose to live a life of constant derision never ceasing their ridicule of new ideas, is that one group continues to climb. The other merely broadens...

    People are programmed to organise themselves - whether it be social class, fashionable clique or preferred lifestyle. This need to assimilate with others - to focus on materials or earnings rather than who a person is, to sense they belong some place...does this allow for free thought or individuality in any sense?

    For two years now, I've been dating this girl, on and off, named Jennifer. I remember when I met her, well, at least tried to meet her. I was seventeen and a senior in high school. I was a bit young for my class since I was born without a uvula so I had speech problems and got sent to school a year earlier. But, that's besides the point. I've always had this sort of "social shell" where I didn't really like meeting anybody new. Jennifer was the new girl on the bus (she lives only about a quarter mile from my house). She was just a freshman, so she didn't know anybody else on the bus save...

    I don't think there can ever be a true answer to how love itself is manifested as emotion. I am impassioned and puzzled to consider love as a human capability. What more than just an amalgamation? A combination of emotional combustion and physical desires, but again, what more? Are the physical attributes even necessary? Surely they are, but not in a way of beauty, I don’t think. An individual’s mind defines beauty for itself, so are aesthetics even relevant if the point of view is not through your own eyes?

    I have come to analyze love and how it affects people creating...

    I believe we are all free energy - every human, every bit of nature, and every animal. This free energy perhaps derived from a much larger energy source that manifested in physical form what we call the Universe. When I think of things like this, it gives me a much more equal view. As we take on the physical form our bodies attune (and are limited) to the biological properties. Once the material being is obstructed that energy is returned to its free state, giving it a chance at manifesting another open form.

    I believe through focusing on one's own self and paying attention to the ebb...
